Our session began on the 25th of Planting, 1152 I.C.
The battle between the two ships was very brief, resulting in few injuries among the party and a near complete rout of the oni. Once the ship was docked, the party soon used their amulet to return to the Confluence, exited in Waterdeep, took yet another ship sailing for the Moonshae Isles, where they dropped the 8th stone into the Sea of Swords along the way. Once in Gondor, Cortana wanted very much to make contact with her fellow Draeni living there, so on the party spent the better part of a week seeing the sights and visiting the crystalline city of Exodar (actually a crashed spaceship). As the party was preparing to leave, however, they came upon a lone drow warrior waiting for them in a strangely vacant section of town.
This drow, who never identified himself, offered to purchase whatever stones the party still had from them, but of course they refused, so a battle ensued. In the course of said battle, Kasumi was slain by an elvish dragon-rider whose mount she herself had slain, Cortana spent a hero point to tear yet another page out of her former master’s spellbook to use as a scroll to become a dragon herself, and in the end, the party was victorious, taking the nazumi warlock (who gave his name as “Chitters”) prisoner. Under questioning, he admitted that his group had been hired by Kadair to find them and stop them, and that they had been tracking them since they left Sentrial City (mainly by keeping watch over the Confluence).
After defeating the other group, the party looted their bodies, turned Chitters over to the authorities, and spent a few more days buying and selling their gains. As we broke for the evening, it was the 20th of Flocktime, 1152 I.C.
